Burrington Estates New Homes are proud sponsors of the Sidmouth Rugby Football Club.
When we were invited to attend a presentation by the team, how could we refuse!
The sun shone on a crisp Autumnal Sunday morning at the Sidford Pavilion rugby pitches. Players of all ages were given their new rugby kit with the warning of ‘please don’t get it dirty, we’re having a photo’, within minutes and oblivious of the warning, the 7 year olds were head locked in a scrum and with a try scored in their ‘kick about’ match, they resulted in a chaotic heap on the ground!
The Managers organised their team of junior and girl’s rugby players who stood patiently waiting for the click of the photographer who at this point, was balanced on a pair of ladders. The children were smiling perfectly and were eager to play a game of rugby!
Marketing Co-ordinator Nicola Russell was presented with a rugby shirt from the Chairman Matt Barrett, she says “it was a lovely morning seeing the next generation expressing appreciation for their new kit, from everyone at Burrington Estates, we wish all the budding young players the very best for the future and season ahead”.
Burrington Estates New Homes are honouring a double success as Shaun Marsden has picked up yet another Seal of Excellence Award at the NHBC Pride in the Jobs Awards in Bristol this afternoon along with his Pride in the Job Award for the third year running.
The team celebrated at the prestigious event along with other Site Managers and their teams across the South West. This is Shaun’s 3rd NHBC Pride in the Job Award and his 3rd Seal of Excellence Award, picking up awards in 2018 and 2019 for his hard work and dedication for the outstanding quality at Trispen Meadows, in Truro, Cornwall – a collection of 85 2, 3 and 4 bedroom beautiful homes. Shaun has been working on the site since construction began in 2017 and has been identified for his pride and quality of workmanship along with his excellence team.
Shaun said, ‘The Pride in the Job Award is one of the most prestigious awards in our industry and it’s a fantastic achievement for the team and I to be recognised for our commitment and devotion. We work extremely hard to ensure the highest standards are delivered for our customers.’

£80m new business, homes and well-being destination coming to Exeter and East Devon
A visionary approach to how we should live and work is being brought to life in Devon, with the purchase of the Winslade Park private estate near Exeter. Burrington Estates, the developers behind the acquisition, has a reputation for their thought leadership in property development and setting new standards in design and build quality. They are clear on their ambition for an extraordinary transformation that will re-invigorate both business and community in the area.
“Our vision is to create beautiful living and working environments, build enduring communities and improve quality of lives. Winslade Park is the perfect site to show this is possible, combining our extensive track record in commercial regeneration and the building of luxury family homes” says Mark Edworthy, Co-Founder and Group Managing Director.
The 86-acre estate and stately home is perfectly placed as an employment, residential and leisure site, next to Junction 30 of the M5, close to the airport and just 10 minutes from Exeter city centre. It will become a beacon of development best-practice, demonstrating how an historic site can be sensitively re-developed to reinvigorate the community, creating a vibrant commercial centre for many thriving businesses around the 18th Century manor house itself, alongside exemplary new homes. The intention is to create 125,000 square feet of high quality, multi-let office space, a high end business club and 150 beautiful residential homes. The development will be tastefully absorbed in the beautiful established parkland, which will be preserved and enhanced with walking and running trails, alongside leisure facilities to serve neighbouring villages, including a cricket club, football pitches, tennis courts, multiple children play areas and a new leisure centre. Much needed public transport connections and local services will be re-established, and around 1000 jobs will be created.
Co-founder Paul Scantlebury explains further, “We are proud to be bringing the iconic stately home and park back to life for a new era. We are determined to create a peerless destination in which to live, work and play and which rivals the most iconic developments around the world, right here in East Devon and Exeter. We will liaise extensively with the existing community to ensure all parts of the new park facilities are accessible and suitable for all to enjoy.”
Alongside the office space and residential homes, the ambition is to create a well-being destination with cafés, restaurants, a high end gym and spa facilities with a swimming pool, cycle spin studio, yoga studio, and hair and beauty salons. There will be many other services to maximise work and family life convenience such as a nursery, pet care, dry cleaning, small grocery and newspaper store. With an estimated £80m value, it will be an extraordinary turnaround for the property which has sat empty for five years. It was previously the headquarters of Friends Provident so has a well-established history as an important employment centre.
“We are incredibly passionate and excited about Winslade Park; we intend to deliver a stunning working, living and leisure destination in the west of England, creating legacy for the region. We are striving to create a thoughtfully designed, integrated community, centred around wellbeing, quality of life and convenience.” says Mark.

We are proud to be working with Devon Heaven Hampers. As well as your first set of BE house keys, when moving into your new home you will receive a Burrington Estates hamper hand delivered by our customer care team, full of delicious goodies for you to enjoy.
Celebrate with local gin, have a brew with some Devonshire tea and indulge in Georgie Porgie’s pudding. Delicately put together by Devon Heaven Hampers, providing you with scrumptious local produce for the whole family.
Devon is lucky to have many craft food & drink producers and as a nice little touch Devon Heaven also include a map showing where in Devon each brand is based. As part of our commitment to the environment we’ve worked with Devon Heaven to reduce the plastic packaging used in the new home hampers by replacing the plastic wrapped biscuits, crisps and fudge with glass bottles of South Devon Chilli Farm Sauce and Luscombe Drinks.
Devon Heaven have also improved the packaging on their own brand truffles by ditching the previously used plastic bag for a paper base one. All the items are then beautifully presented in a re-usable Burrington Jute Bag.

After hibernating during the winter, bees awaken in time to collect pollen and nectar from their preferred plants. Bees are excellent pollinators, as well as bees, we rely heavily on insect pollinators, such as, butterflies, wasps, moths, flies and even birds.
How does pollination happen?
When a pollinator lands on a flower, some of the pollen rubs off on its body, then when it visits the next plant, it transfers that pollen so pollination can happen.
A flowering plant has to be fertilised with pollen before it can make seeds and produce another plant. If this didn’t happen, we would run out of plants and food.
In our show home gardens, we encourage pollinators by planting flowers rich in nectar and pollen, why don’t you do the same?! We need to look after our brilliant bugs and insects and we can all do our bit to help them.
Why not plant flowers rich in nectar, such as lavender and bluebells, which will help bees find the food they need?
Also, be sure to choose local British honey, too, which will support our Honey bees and their beekeepers!
